My Magnolia

Back to the garden after a very busy but enjoyable week.

My magnolia, Magnolia Soulangiana or Soulangeana, is in full bloom, about three weeks later than last year. It will eventually grow to 4 metre high I'm told.

Listen to Paul Davis singing Sweet Magnolia Blues here on YouTube.

or instead you could listen to

The Grateful Dead singing Sugar Magnolia here.

but my favourite is Magnolia Blues by Charley Patton, listen here.

YOu should write something for Abridged, a Derry based mag. They have a magnolia theme this time.
